The soil for cucumbers must be harvested in advance since autumn. For this, the site for the future planting of cucumbers is removed from last year’s plants and weeds, then they make humus and then dig it.
As an organic fertilizer suitable any: mullein, chicken manure, peat. Plant loves all sorts of feedings. Crop yield directly depends on them.
Fertilize can be throughout the growing season. In addition to humus and organics, you can make superphosphate, nitrogenous agents, a solution of urea. As a preventive measure, you can spray bushes with broth of beet or potato tops. It is strictly forbidden to make chlorine fertilizers.
For seeds, there are also certain requirements. Best to acquire glazed seeds, they are already disinfected and processed by growth promoters. But such seeds are certainly much more expensive than ordinary seeds.Kibriya cucumber seeds
Seeds can be processed independently. To do this, they are first kept in a solution of potassium permanganate, then they are germinated in a moist and warm environment (in gauze or cotton bags). Already germinated seeds need to harden, bringing them to the cold. After all these procedures, you can safely plant seeds in the soil. The main word is now in weather conditions.
Important also observe crop rotation plants. To the crop was abundant, should be planted vegetables after tomatoes, beans and potatoes. After cucumbers, these vegetables should not be planted for at least 4 years.
Planted seed in well-loosened earth in the previously harvested holes in depth no more than 3 cm.
